Hoodlums attacked the Igbosere High Court, Obalende on Wednesday evening 21 October stealing computers, printers, files, fans, air conditioners and other items.
The Igbosere High court attack comes after scores of reprisal attacks and mob violence were reported in different parts of Lagos state and Nigeria today following the shooting and killing of Unarmed #EndSars protesters by Nigerian Army soldiers in Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night, October 20, garnering local and international condemnation.
In a video circulating online, looters could be seen running around with different items and one of the thugs could be seen dressed in a judge’s robe and wig, wielding a machete.
After looting the court known as ‘temple of justice’ the rioters set it on fire.
Several public buildings in Lagos Island including the Palace of the Oba of Lagos, Oriental hotel, Lekki toll gate, the office of the Nigerian Ports Authority, banks and the family home of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu have all been vandalized in the last 24 hours.
It is believed pending legal cases will not be affected by the Court’s vandalization as
the Lagos State Judiciary now employs e-filing.
